Legal, yes. Honest? Well, just how are they going to get paid for their time? Unlikely the investor will be using their services, so once they catch on, you won’t have a Realtor to use any longer.

Realtors call their best clients as soon as a great deal is about to hit the market. My realtor called me once and I ended up having a property locked up before the listing even broke. There are good deals to be had on the MLS but you have to do the research to find them.

If the investor is buying and the realtor finds the properties, what value do you add to the mix? (rhetorical)

What in the world would make you think that anything you find through a Realtor would already have had due diligence performed on it? Realtors are about the least qualified to do that.

IMO any Realtor worth his/her salt has enough investors on their speed dial that on anything that’s even close to a good deal they’ll have a couple of them trulyinterested while the listing is still “in pocket”.
